BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A school district in Texas says it will suspend any student that takes part in walkouts or protests during school hours.
“Please be advised that the Needville ISD will not allow a student demonstration during school hours for any type of protest or awareness!!,” the post read. “We will discipline no matter if it is one, fifty, or five hundred students involved. All will be suspended for 3 days and parent notes will not alleviate the discipline.”
In the letter posted to Facebook, Needville ISD Curtis Rhodes said students would face a three-day, out-of-school suspension if they protested.
“Life is all about choices and every choice has a consequence whether it be positive or negative,” he said in the letter.
